More about Ganesha Thangka Art
Thangka painting depicts Ganesha, who is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, bestower of good luck, the patron of arts & sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.
The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears. He is worshiped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja, one of the main Hindu prayers.
Ganesha's head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents OM, the sound symbol of cosmic reality.
More about Newa Art
Newari artists are renowned throughout Asia for the high quality of their workmanship. In certain periods, their style had tremendous influence on the art of Tibet and China. The combination of Tibetan art made in the traditional Newari way has been acknowledged to create beautiful and intriguing masterpieces.
Newari paintings are commonly kept in museums and private collections in the West and Asia. There are only a handful of genuine painters left, who can draw in this way, as it requires perfecting both Tibetan painting technique and Newari painting style. Hence, Newari style paintings are rarely reproduced nowadays and have near enough become extinct.
